Science Department

The Science Department endeavors to encourage each student to integrate her knowledge of the natural sciences so that in the course of her adult life she can make informed, moral and responsible decisions.  We work:

  • To demonstrate applications of science to everyday life
  • To instill a desire and enthusiasm for life-long science learning
  • To develop critical thinking skills
  • To integrate the study of science with other discipline, addressing ethical issues where appropriate
  • To provide students with an awareness and appreciation for the beauty, order, and harmony of nature “which characterize the works of God, the creator.”
